I have one probably forty years old but haven't used it for so long I have likely forgotten how. At the time I was more into cars. On two stroke I rely more on a visual through the exhaust port, if I get back into 4 stroke (unlikely but possible) I'll make a leakdown tester.

I read somewhere that a standard auto compression tester was no good for small engines.  It was news to me as I've been using the same unit for at least 30 years without anything seeming to be out of whack. 

Maybe there is some small difference.  But, it can't be enough to make a difference I wouldn't think.

I use a automotive designed one.
